Troy Newman Speaks on Behalf of Aborted Babies in MSNBC Documentary on Tiller Murder

Wichita, KS – MSNBC will air a documentary about the murder of late-term abortionist George Tiller on Monday evening, October 25, 2010. Producers of the documentary heavily relied on Operation Rescue files and interviewed Operation Rescue President Troy Newman for the program.

“We completely understand the liberal bent of MSNBC and expect it to be heavily slanted toward the pro-abortion position. We were concerned with the involvement of talk show host Rachel Maddow, who is a radical abortion apologist who has grossly mischaracterized Operation Rescue and members of our staff on her nightly program. Never the less, we felt it was necessary to participate for several reasons,” said Newman.

The producers of the documentary wanted to tell two stories, that of the “saintly” George Tiller and that of Scott Roeder the “devil.”

“We agreed to do the show — even though we knew they would vilify us — because we had a third story to tell, and that is the story of the tens of thousands of innocent babies killed by abortion during Tiller’s long and checkered abortion career,” said Newman. “It remains to be seen whether or not MSNBC allows that story to be told, but we hope they keep their word to do so.”

MSNBC agreed to show images of aborted babies during the program.

Over a seven-year period, Operation Rescue engaged in an effort to expose Tiller’s horrific late-term abortion business and convince authorities close his abortion clinic for good. OR’s campaign publicized a shocking number of botched abortions requiring emergency hospitalization, discovered and publicized the death of 19-year old Christin Gilbert from a botched third-trimester abortion, and helped to convene two grand juries. Operation Rescue cooperated with the Attorney General’s office, which eventually prosecuted Tiller for committing illegal late-term abortions. While the criminal prosecution was unsuccessful, the attention set the stage for a disciplinary petition against Tiller’s license that was based on a complaint filed by Operation Rescue.

The following are just a few results of Operation Rescue’s seven years of work in Wichita, Kansas:

  • The number of late-term abortions dropped 54% in Kansas (based on stats from KDH&E)
  • A second abortion clinic, Central Women’s Services, was bought and closed by OR and now serves as our national headquarters.
  • Kansas State Board of Healing Arts discipline of Tiller on eleven causes of action was a certainty. (In fact, the KSBHA is now in the process of disciplining Tiller associate Ann Kristin Neuhaus on eleven very similar counts based again on Operation Rescue’s complaint.)
  • Tiller had shut down his political action committee, ProKanDo, once the largest and most influential PAC in the state.
  • Tiller had announced his retirement to his office staff just two weeks before his murder.
  • But before the KSBHA had an opportunity to act, Tiller was murdered by a lone gunman in a brutal act that Operation Rescue was among the first to denounce.

    In fact, Operation Rescue and its staff have a long history of peaceful activism and good working relationships with law enforcement agencies.

    “We fully expect to be vilified in the MSNBC Tiller documentary, but the truth of the matter is that Operation Rescue worked for seven years within the law and with governmental oversight agencies, law enforcement, and legislators to expose what we believed was criminal activity at Tiller’s late-term abortion clinic and bring him to justice. In the process, the nation became more aware of the tragic nature of late-term abortions and abuses within the abortion industry. Working with other groups, hundreds of babies were spared from abortion by tireless sidewalk counselors, including OR staffers, who never lost sight of the plight of the pre-born nor diminished in desire to save innocent lives. It is because of our combined work that Wichita today remains abortion-free and a safe haven for women and their pre-born babies.”

    The MSNBC documentary is scheduled to air October 25, 2010, at 9:00 pm Eastern time. Check your local listings for time and channel in your area.

    Massachusetts Abortionist Sentenced to Jail for Abortion Death

    Barnstable, MA – Abortionist Rapin Osathanondh, 67, was sentenced to six months in jail today after pleading guilty yesterday to one count of manslaughter in the 2007 abortion-related death of 22-year old Laura Hope Smith.

    Osathanondh will serve three months in a county jail after which he will likely be paroled. He must then serve nine months under home confinement with an electronic monitoring device, and three years of probation. In addition, Osathanondh is barred from practicing medicine and teaching, according to a plea agreement that was reached after a day of in-court negotiations.

    Also settled was the civil suit filed by Smith’s mother, Eileen Smith. Osathanondh agreed to pay the family a substantial sum of money as a punitive measure.

    “Today, justice was done,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, who helped advise Eileen Smith after her daughter’s death and encouraged her to file complaints with the medical board and prosecutors. “Our condolences and prayers continue to be with the Smith family, who showed such an amazing strength of faith and courage throughout this ordeal.”

    “This conviction is an object lesson to prosecutors across the nation that abortionists can and should be held criminally accountable to the law for the sake of justice and public safety. There are abortionists out there right now who are endangering the lives of women who should be joining Osathanondh in jail. We hope today’s sentencing will encourage prosecutors to file criminal charges against abortionists who are breaking the law. Leaving these kinds of cases to the medical boards and civil courts is simply not good enough.”

    Osathanondh admitted in court to behaving in a wanton and reckless manner that endangered Smith’s life. He failed to properly monitor Smith while under anesthesia and did not call for emergency assistance in a timely manner when she suffered complications. He was also found to have lied to cover up his negligence by claiming he administered emergency care that was never done.

    “Osathanondh lawyers need to stop saying that he gave Laura ‘good care’ because he has now admitted in court that he did not, and she died as a result. It doesn’t get any worse than that,” said Newman.

    Earlier, Osathanondh surrendered his medical license and closed his two abortion offices. A sign from his Hyannis office where Laura died now hangs as a memento at Operation Rescue’s national headquarters in Wichita, Kansas.
